This is also much more formal than most of the engagements she's done before marriage. Just look at how Harry is dressed.

I think it's just Meghan and the type of her body figure. She's tiny and slim, but looks a bit boxy. It makes the clothes look... off on her.

Pretty dress (looks ill-fitted in the video but fine in still pics), love the hat, and I'm glad her hair is neat. Do not care for the heavy-ish hose. Something more sheer would have been better.

Back to the Duchess' dress, it's mono colour, which is one of my problem with it. Even though other Royal ladies do this all the time, we've seen the duchess added a dash of colour in an otherwise minimalistic dress and so make it interesting.

I'm excited to see how she's going to insert her personal style into the traditional look expected from a royalty. Hopefully she won't change herself completely trying to fit in.

I dislike the dress. I'm not a fan of the color and the fit is terrible.

Absolute love the hat and her hairstyle. Her hat game is on point.

Not a huge fan of the dress, the color is fine, like many I think that it is ill fitting. Although I love the length on the Duchess. The hat is gorgeous on her and FINALLY, her hair is staying put and looks wonderful (why couldn't this have happened Saturday?). The hose/tights are fine, but maybe a color closer to her skin tone would have been nicer. All in all, not a bad debut as a royal.

Hat, hair and shoes good

The dress does nothing for her - the colour is draining and it doesnt fit properly.

On Saturday her hairdresser stated her hair was suppose to fall she wanted it that way.

(..) I don't think it looks bad at all.

I love this whole look, especially the hat and hair! I don't think the stockings were necessary, however.

Some are speculating that her dress must be the runway edition since the cuffs are slightly different than the one available online. How thin must one be to have a runway dress fit loosely?

I do like the soft look of the color, material, and fit.

P.S. SO, unlike what many on this forum were saying...her hair can stay put...!
This looks like a formal occasion, and her hair may have been rather forcibly subdued.

I rather hope this style of Hat [brimmed, simple and supremely elegant], becomes the 'signature' Millinery for the Duchess, just as vast Feathery ones are for the Duchess of Cornwall, as tilted 'perchers' are for the Duchess of Cambridge and 'Spaceships' are for Lady Sarah Chatto..

It REALLY 'works' on her..

i believe they are as it was formal event at Buckingham Palace - stockings/ tights/nylons whatever you want to call them, were appropriate attire for the Duchess. I think a good rule of thumb would be, if they event calls for a hat, then she should be wearing stockings (and yes she will be be held to a higher standard than the guests).

I love everything about this look. It's very much her style in that it's clean and sleek with a twist. Great color, fantastic styling, beautiful hat: she's got this.

Oh, and was Harry there?

I don't think they are too heavy but the wrong shade. She should ask Camilla what colour she wears because you can really see the difference. Nude does not flatter everyone and often looks pallid. (Including on me!)

Oh I understand why they are considered appropriate. When I say necessary, I just mean it's the one thing that kind of takes away from the look for me. I don't care for stockings, in general.

Apparently the dress looks better in person than in photographs. I don't hate it but all I can focus on anyways is that hat and those shoes.

It's a very pretty dress to me. I've seen some video and yes, it does look even better in motion.
